WordPress Security, An Introduction

WordPress Security

WordPress SecurityWordPress Security is the last thing salon owners think about with a new website. In this episode we start with WordPress Security Tips and end with a new segment.

WordPress Security – Last On Your Mind

WordPress Security isn’t exciting or sexy in the least bit. It’s the stuff that makes up the details. So it’s no wonder that the only folks online that are talking security, are the folks with a dog in the hunt. The folks whose incomes are tied to security.

On one hand it’s easy to ignore these voices, but just because they’ve got a vested interest in your wallet doesn’t mean that they should be ignored.  If the 90,000 computer WordPress Brute Force attack taught us one thing, it’s that there are bad players in the world and no site escapes their scrutiny.

Give ’em an inch and they’ll take a mile. Give ’em a rope and they want to be a cowboy.  If your salon has a WordPress website or you’re thinking about getting one started, you can’t afford to be ignorant of the threats that are out there or the steps you can take to protect yourself.

Our New WordPress Security Segment

WordPress security is a big topic.  There is so much to talk about.

  1. Security best practices
  2. Recent threats to WordPress
  3. Comparison of the many WordPress security companies.

A single podcast episode could not do this topic justice.  So we’re introducing a new segment focusing on security.  It’ll be a revolving segment on the podcast, but we will make it a weekly blog post.

WordPress Security The Power Is In The Tweets

I’ve never been a big fan of Twitter because I’ve been mostly interested in it from a marketing point of view.  However, I’ve recently linked it to the blog to keep everyone up to date when I post new content.

I’ll begin using that channel when I learn about WordPress security issues that ned to be jumped on quickly. Follow me on Twitter to stay updated.

do the begun m told that nothing moves at the speed of a tweet. Given the urgent nature of some of the WordPress security threats, I will begin tweeting out security warnings for immediate notification when I become aware of new security threats.
